WordPress, for example, has some very neat options that allow you to do that very easily. Three of them are highlighted in this article by Ben Huberman: pagination, page jumps, and "the more" tag.

50 WordPress plugins you should try this year

From socialmediaslant.com

The other day, someone asked me to recommend a few plugins for their WordPress blog. After sharing links, I figured that listing them on Social Media Slant could help more people. In my blogging career, I have tested many plugins. Some stopped working or triggered compatibility issues, while others did not offer the kind of features I was looking for. Thankfully, the WordPress plugin repository and the Internet offer a lot of choice!

Interested in making your WordPress blog more interactive? Try Shortcodes Ultimate

From socialmediaslant.com

As some of you know, my knowledge of CSS is quite limited. So, when I decide to tweak my website, things that are simple for a designer to implement can sometimes give me a hell of a time. I thought I was headed that way when I recently decided to redesign my About page (see picture to the right). Happy to report that it didn't happen, though. Shortcodes Ultimate did the trick!
